about

Behind the Song:

I’ve always loved the versions of Dodi Li that I grew up singing, but I always wished there was one with poetic English lyrics. The first verse of the song is a poetic interpretation of the Hebrew words, but I was at a loss as to what the second verse could be until I went searching for outside inspiration… and found it in "Romeo and Juliet."

lyrics

Dodi li va’ani lo
Haroeh, haroeh bashoshanim
Haroeh bashoshanim, dodi li

All I am is yours
All I am is yours
All I am, and all I’ll ever be is yours, is yours

Dodi li va’ani lo
Haroeh, haroeh bashoshanim
Haroeh bashoshanim, dodi li

My love is as boundless as the sea,
My love as deep; the more I give to thee,
The more I have, for both are infinite to me, to me

Dodi li va’ani lo
Haroeh, haroeh bashoshanim
Haroeh bashoshanim, dodi li
Haroeh bashoshanim, dodi li
